Description

According to the article, "When the Occupation Health and Safety Administration set out to protect employees from repetitive motion injuries, it was attacking one of the greatest scourges of the modern workplace. The government estimated that about 200,000 workers a year were hurt doing the same chore over and over. A decade later, OSHA finally is on the verge of adopting new ergonomics rules, but its crusade has mushroomed, igniting a war with American business."
